Tourists gather outside Windsor Castle to view where the Royal Wedding was held

On the morrow of yesterday’s Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and the American actress Meghan Markle, a substantial number of tourists gathered, curious to view from close quarters Windsor Castle where the ceremony was held. It will not be long before the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex will begin their official commitments.

It is estimated that an audience of 18 million viewers followed the wedding on television and today a large number of British people and tourists queued outside the castle to gain viewing access with many wishing to view the St George’s Chapel where the ceremony actually took place.

Some of the comments were:

“I am excited to see inside the castle. Yesterday I came to watch the procession and it was beautiful. So this is my first time here and I am really excited.”

“Yes, yesterday I was watching the live transmission. I was in London so I could not visit Windsor Castle yesterday but the wedding saga is still going on I feel. I see everywhere the photos, the crowns and all. I am very happy to be here.”

“Well, I’m hoping to go into the chapel and see all the flowers from yesterday, all the lovely floral arrangements and a bit of history. We’re queuing for half an hour so it must be worth it.”

Royal Family admirers this morning made an early start to snap up a newspaper or two to keep as a souvenir of the wedding.

It was reported the whole event cost €36 million with 94% of that sum spent on security for guests and the many thousands that gathered in the vicinity of Windsor Castle. The Royal Family will make good expenses that include the music, floral arrangements, decorations and the receptions that followed but the major part of security expenses will come from public funds.

Meanwhile the first official engagement for the Duke and Duchess will be on Tuesday in the Buckingham Palace gardens to celebrate the 70th birthday of Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales.

The couple are expected to begin their honeymoon at a later date with Botswana being tipped as the likely venue.
